Tollymore forrest score event. 30min score which I did on map memory for the training value otherwise I probably would have been able to get all the controls and they weren't difficult. Map memory made it very hard but was worth it for the training as it showed how I can just drop the more focussed map reading on simple legs and just run, whilst visualising the map in my head. Got 13/21 controls and made a few mistakes. Bit of fun but good training too.
12 PM

Running (Warm Down) 2:46 [2] 0.53 km (5:13 / km)
ahr:160 max:174 rhr:62 shoes: Inov8 Oroc 340

Short warm down but legs feeling good.

ahr:143 max:153 rhr:59 shoes: Inov8 Oroc 340

Was organising the event today and so I didn't have much time to warm up as I was the very last starter.

Orienteering 59:26 [5] *** 5.71 km (10:25 / km) +247m 8:33 / km
ahr:162 max:194 rhr:59 shoes: Inov8 Oroc 340

Went out on the brown course but only did 9 control as I felt really, really tired and couldn't concentrate so I cut it short after I thought I had done enough. I got okay training value out of today but annoyed I couldn't do the whole thing.

Had a look at the EYOC sprint map and planned some routes on a short time scale. Looks like a bog standard town with not too much technical difficulty but there will be a lot of direction changes due to small allies between buildings.
